Review: Propellerhead’s Figure

The first time I heard about this little iOS software called Figure I got very excited. First off, it only cost 99c making this a total bargain and encourage us to try it out. The apps it self is pretty simple. It comes with 3 instruments which consist of Drum which is powered by Reason’s Kong Drum Designer, Bass & Lead which is powered by Reason’s Thor. Once you launch it, you’ll see 4 pads that you use to control the drum and when going through the tabs you can change the mode from pattern, tweaks, song & mix. There are also several sound banks to get you started.

Overall is pretty neat but just like every iOS apps out there, It has yet to able to be taken seriously as a music making tools. It lacks the ability to export sound or MIDI note therefore making this more of a toy than the real deal. Nonetheless, its pretty fun and its a good glimpse to the future of what the iOS ecosystem can do plus it’s only 99c.
